Hello! I’m Deepika, a freelance magazine journalist. I was born in Jaiselmer (Rajasthan) and grew up in Surat (Gujarat) — two very unique Indian cities. My blog Taste Memory is a food memoir where I record my mum’s traditional recipes, share my love for authentic cooking from India and around the world, and dabble into childhood food memories. Sometimes I also write my personal thoughts (some of them make me cringe later!). My husband and I are also into slow travel; we especially love to explore local destinations. So you will also see a bit about our travels and places that inspire me. Welcome to my world!
